GUERIN SYSTEMS OFFERS TURN-KEY COMPOUNDING SYSTEMS, the perfect solution for plastics mixtures and pvc dry blends
Chicago, April 1, 2002
The French company GUERIN SYSTEMS is offering plastics manufacturers and processors a turn-key solution for the compounding of PVC and other plastics. This automated powder handling system allows flexible ingredient production while cutting costs and reducing material waste. Built and installed according to customer requirements, the systems are ideal for companies that produce PVC pipes, window profiles, dry blend and other plastics. These companies usually prefer to make up their own compound batches in-house. This also includes rubber compounds, tires, joints, and both extrusion and injection molding firms.
Depending on the size of the unit needed, Guerin Systems can design and build compound systems capable of producing up to 12 tons an hour per line of finished product. Storage silos hold 150 tons of solids, with dust-free conveyors using dilute or dense phase pneumatic systems to convey material at a high flow rate. All ingredients are systematically weighed, and a micro-dosing station allows small amounts of solids or liquids to be added to each batch with an accuracy level of 5 grams. Proportioning is by both positive and negative weighing.
With this system, 100% reliable formulating is assured, resulting in exact duplication for each batch.
Mixing of ingredients is done after weighing. Recipe changing is accomplished instantaneously, not including cleaning time. Automatic feed control enables the production of more batches per hour. Finished product is placed in fifty-five pound bags and palletized, or put into finished product silos or into big-bag containers capable of holding up to one ton of product.
Controlling this entire system is Guerin Systems' proprietary DosaVision software program. With DosaVision, all raw material flow is displayed on screen upon entry, during dosing and mixing, and as it is packaged.
Detailed listing of incidents and weight tolerances are given. All activities are described in standardized modules that allow the automation of raw material preparation and formula management. Alarm and default windows and acknowledgement, automatic and manual control modes, secured passwords and remote supervision via a modem are all offered. Very user-friendly, the Dosavision program assures a high level of quality control.
The end result of the complete system is improved product quality and reduced production cost, with a very high level of reliability. Guerin Systems solutions are ideal for both PVC dry blending or other compounds, including PVC, PP, ABS, HDPE, LDPE, and LLDPE. The company offers its complete services in engineering, manufacturing, plant construction, personnel training and full automation, guarantying the final performance of the system. Guerin Systems has designed and built over 100 compounding systems that are now in full operation and is seeking new business contacts.
